First Aid Kit started building buzz on the strength of their cover of Fleet Foxes' "Tiger Mountain Peasant Song," so it makes sense that their latest offering in their busy 2014 is a cover of R.E.M.'s "Walk Unafraid," which they recorded for the soundtrack of the upcoming movie Wild, starring Reese Witherspoon as a grief-stricken young woman who hikes the Pacific Crest Trail after her mother's death. It's a great cover, with delicate folk arrangements and interwoven vocals matching the original's emotive power. Check it out.
From the forthcoming soundtrack of Wild.
